Fundraising students support local charities

Our Hair and Beauty department has handed over a cheque for £103 to Barnsley Hospital’s Tiny Hearts Appeal.

Students and staff from the College raised the money by selling raffle tickets for a chance to win a hamper full of donated items. The department also raised money to buy socks, woolly hats, thermal shoes and gloves for homeless shelters.

Rhianna Mcgrath, a Level 2 Hairdressing student, said: “We feel really proud of ourselves and it’s great to be involved in raising money for great charities. It’s been a brilliant experience to organise and plan this ourselves. It has given us the chance to build our confidence and develop our communications skills which we will use when talking to our clients.”

Lisa Calvert, Charity Development Manager for Barnsley Hospital Charity, added: “Barnsley Hospital Charity is really grateful to Barnsley College and their students for their support. The money raised will help the Tiny Hearts Appeal make a real difference to the families who will use the new unit in the future. We look forward to working collaboratively in the future.”
